Pasteles De Guayaba (Guava and Cream Cheese Pastries)

Pasteles De Guayaba (Guava and Cream Cheese Pastries) created by Jonathan Melendez

This is a childhood favorite that conjures up memories of growing up as a gringa in South Florida and sitting in the open air Cuban Cafes and indulging on these sweet pastries! These pastries are wonderful with a café con leche!! They were a special treat that we were allowed to have on occasion for breakfast. It is actually one of the few things I actually miss about South Florida! The recipe is from Alex Garcia.

    Takes quite a while to make this - it's time consuming; however, the end result was yummy so it was worth it. Dough was good; however, the next time I make this I'll use puff pastry - easier to work with.
